Our closets and cupboards are starting to feel less cluttered.
Two weeks in and I might be getting a little too impulsive with playing my minimalism game. Yesterday as I looked through our things for something to get rid of, I started to get a little anxious as I put the chosen item into the give-away bag.
But what if I decide that I need those shoes with the holes in the soles?!
The rational part of my brain then kicked in as I remembered why I am playing this game in the first place (Small space. Less stuff). And then I also realized that the things I'm getting rid of are things I rarely use. That biking jersey? The pockets are too small to hold my iPhone let alone an extra bike tube. Those hats? I don't think I put even one winter hat on this year. The trail shoes that give me toe-bang? No thanks. And that Ragnar medal that doubles as a bottle opener? I think we can get by with the other three bottle openers that are still in our silverware drawer.
The big black bag of give-aways is growing and oh, how I love to see it fill.
And why, might you ask, did I collect, pack up and then move a bag full of milk caps from Boston to Salt Lake City? They were for a craft project that never happened.
Goodbye, milk caps!
I intend to make these into a caterpillar. Now they are headed to the recycle.
